Wordle

Have you played around with Wordle?

Great fun.  Wordle is an online tool that generates “word clouds” from text that you provide.  The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more freqeuntly in the source text. So you copy a block of representative text (from your blog?  your resume?  your mission statement?), paste it into Wordle, and see what it looks like.  You can alter the look with different fonts, colors, layouts and then print them out, save them, or email them.  This one pictured here is a wordle of the complete contents of my blog so far.  I was pleased to see the word “student” so prominently front and center.  And it looks like I believe that all of this CAN be done.
